Courtright Shifts Two Former
Tackles, One Guard to
Backfield Berths.
Truskowski Will Use Wolverine
System of Attack Against
Michigan Jayvees.
While Michigan's gridiron war-
riors are tackling theIllini today,
Coach Ray Courtright's Junior Var-
sity eleven will be making its sec-
ond and last home appearance of
the season this afternoon when it
encounters Olivet college on Ferry
field at 2 o'clock. As is the usual
case with "B" team games admis-
sion will be free.
When the Jayvees take the field
this afternoon their lineup will be;
quite different from that in previ-
ous games this fall as Coach Court-
right is attempting to find a com-
bination that will put plenty of
punch into the attack. In today's
experiment the Jayvee mentor will
have two former tackles and one
guard in the backfield with Lindsay
in an effort to outdo the contingent
from Olivet.
Tackles in Backfield.
Miller and McGuire are formerI
tackles who will go into the game
today as ball carriers along with
Meldman who has heretofore been
working as a guard. Lindsay will
round out the backfield as director
of the offensive. With this plan in
opera tion such backs as Bremen,
Tillotson, Stinespring and Hayes
will be left on the sidelines.
The last meeting of the Wolver-
ines and Olivet was in 1894 when
the Ann-Arbor
">c,lads trounced the
team, 48 to 0. In
t renewing its rela-
tionsthis fall the
Maize and Blue
will be running up
against a system
. of football very
similar to their
own, as Joe Trus-
kowski, a former
athlete and cap-
tain of the 1929
Truskowski eleven at Michi-
gan, is tutoring the grid team at
Even though the "B" team will
be encountering an eleven that is
well drilled in the famous Michigan
system of the gridiron, Coach Ray
Courtright is hopeful that the shift
in the lineup will provide the win-
ning drive that was lacking in the
Ohio game last week. Another point
in favor of the Wolves is the fact
that they will all be out to win to-
day after bowing to the Buckeye
Juniors, 6 to 0.
The Michigan forward wall will
be composed of Hazen at left end;
Clohset, left tackle; Savage, left
guard; Winston, center; Singer, at
right guard; McGrath or Damm,
right tackle; and Stone, right end.
In the backfield there will be Liid-
say at quarter; Bob Miller, left half;
McGuire, right half; and Meldman,
fullback. .
With this lineup the Jayvees. will
have the same forward line with
the exception of Conover at right
guard which proved itself so effect-
ive on both offense and defense last
week, and with the change in the
backfield the ball carriers should
be able to come through when they
are within scoring range.

Plan to Organize
Archery Club Here
Owing to the interest shown
here in archery during the past
few years, an archery club will
be formed under the leadership
of Dr. Lyman. All those inter-
ested are requested to meet at
the Yost Field House, Sunday at
three o'clock, and bring their
equipment, as there will be a
practice then.
A scarlet crimson rose, having
heart shaped petals, has been pat-

Michigan's Second Generation Gridders Are
Handicapped by Traditions of Their Fathers

'Heston Was Greatest Western
Halfback,' Said Camp
of Heston, Sr.
By Wilbur J. Myers
Never in Michigan's gridiron his-
tory have the names of the heroes
of yesterday been so much in prom-
inence as they have auring the
present season, names which are
a part of the very tradition of the
institution, but which are again in
the headlines only because a second
generation is attempting to repeat
that tradition.
Under a rather glaring light of
continual newspaper publicity, the
Heston boys, Jack and Willie, and
the junior Yost have faced the dif-
ficult task of living up to the bril-
liant reputations surrounding the
names they bear. The constant
comparisons in the press shouting
forth the ableness of their fathers
have proved an almost insurmount-
able -barrier to any -native talent
which the boys may possess. Only
last week, Willie Heston, the elder
of the two brothers, turned in his
uniform after three years of vai
effort td "make" the Varsity. He
could not repeat. Jack, however,
appears to be well on the road to
a name of his own.
This Heston tradition begins

Heston, with his speed and weight,
would tear loose, whereas when he
had an opportunity to get his man

Of Schultz, he said, "Adolph

Indiana Plays Chicago, Iowa

Michigan last Saturday has added

Title at Stake.
The leadership of the Conference
hangs on this contest as the .Wild-
cats are aiming for their second
consecutive title. However their
backfield must function at its best
defensively as their line has not
come up to expectations and Cri-
tics. are looking for Ohio State's
forward wall to outplay them.
Indiana has a squad of sopho-
mores and veterans with a power-
ful passing attack to hurl at Chi-
cago today. The Hoosiers will be
at full strength for the engagement
with the return of Sabik who is
their brilliant sophomore passer.
Maroons Out to Win.
Chicago is expected to rely on
the aerial game too, if Indiana can
stop their running attack. With
the advantage of having Pat Page,
former Indiana coach, teach them
the Hoosier formations, the Ma-
roons should put up a good battle.
The game is a tossup.
Iowa is journeying to Minnesota
with new plays doped to trick the
home team into its third straight
defeat at the hands of the Hawk-
eyes. To score a touchdown would
be a new sensation for the 1931
Iowa eleven as it did not get in-

The Gophers were idle last week
and have used the two weeks to
prepare for this game. Jack Man-
ders, 205-pound plunger, and 'My
Ubl, clever sophomore halfback
are expected to furnish most of the
offense for Minnesota. Two veter-
an ends, Robinson and Teeter, will
have a chance to receive a lot of
passes from Ubl and they ought to
beat Iowa for the first time in three

Wisconsin is unusually strong
this season as manifest in the Pur-
due game last week but is stronger
than ever too. Wisconsin is tarted
on a winning streak and ought to

Freshman Pair Set 11:32 Mark
in Cross Country; Lead
Field of 31.
Racing stride to stride for the
last half mile, Rod Howell and Bos-
worth tied for first place in the
freshman cross country run yester-
day in the excellent time of 11:32
for the two miles. Stamping them-
selves as potential Varsity material,
the two led a field of 31 starters
over the two-mile grind, leading
the others from the start.
Heath, who finished third, was 40
yards behind the winners at the
finish, although he started a des-
perate sprint some 200 yards from
the tape.
McMillan, who has led most of
the previous trials, was unable to
Starting the two mile grind, the
31 starters stayed well bunched to
the half-mile marker, when Howell,
Bosworth, Heath, Taft, and Whack-
er began to forge ahead, running
even at the mile. Rounding the
south end of the stadium, Bosworth,
Howell and Heath were in the lead,
but as the trio passed the mile and
a half marker, Heath began to slip
behind, while the other two ran side
by side to the finish.
Heath, finishing third, was timed
in 11:41; Chef followed him in 11:53,
closely followed by Wacker in 11:54
and one-half. Taft steamed in at
12:01 to take sixth place.

Faculty Tennis, Golf
Sometime During

to Close

Faculty sports on the Intramural
fall calendar are moving along, es-
pecially in the golf tourney which
is reaching the quarter-finals. Con-
tinued good weather and consci-
entous endeavor to play off the
matches should bring these two
meets to a conclusion in the next
week or so.
Cissell and Niehuss of the cham-
pionship flight have both reached
the quarter and are paired for.
their next match. In the first flight
two matches have yet to be played
before the quarters; Hardy vs. Cus-
tis and Coursey vs. Eddy. The sec-
ond flight has Darling in the quar-
ter brace and Wilson to play Ris-
key in the round before.
Of the field of eight in the facul-
ty tennis meet six have met and
three players have advanced each
way in the double elimination.
Johnstone defeated Michaels, Gear-
hart took the measure of Brass-
field, and Angell won his match
with Thompson. McClusky and
Dorsey still have a first round
match to be played off to get every-
one moving one way or the other.
Volleyball as the second event
on the inter-fraternity Intramural
competition will be drawn up in
the form of a tournament this com-
ing week. Entries for the houses in
this number close today at 6 p. m.
Alpha Kappa Lambda, last year's
winner, is entered again and will
defend its title against a strong
field. The A.K.L.'s are definitely out
for a repetition of last season's rec-
ord and hope to add the trophy to
their lists.
Teams will be put into leagues
of five each as formerly to deter-
mine the various league -winners.
These winners will then play in a
championship series until the final
title honors have been decided. The
card will be drawn up to have 12
teams going into action every night
of play.

Harvard, Dartmouth, Tulane,
Picked to Win Games
by Big Scores.
By Brian W. Jones
Now that the little game of
"kicking over the dope bucket" is
well under way among major col-
lege elevens of the country it ap-
pears, to be a hopeless task to ven-
ture any predictions regarding to-
day's games. However, here goes.
Just remember your guess is as
good as ours.
Yale and Army will attempt to
break a deadlock of a year's stand-
ing when they clash at the Yale
Bowl in the biggest game on the
Eastern card. Despite Army's loss
to Harvard last week, we look for
them to turn back the sons of "old
Eli." New York U. should have lit-
tle trouble with Colgate and Navy
looks to have the nod over Prince-I
ton by at least two touchdowns.
Harvard Looks a Winner.
Harvard and Fordham appear to
be too strong for their intersection-
al rivals Texas and Drake respec-
tively. Brown should win handily
from Lehigh, while we see nothing
but a trouncing in sight for Rut-
gers in their battle with Holy Cross.
The "Big Green" from Dartmouth
should easily defeat Lebanon Val-
Despite "Hunk" Anderson's pes-
simism, we look for Notre Dame to
take Pittsburgh in its stride. Mis-
souri should be able to handle Iowa
State, by at least the two touch-
down, margin of last year or more.
M. S. C. Out For Blood. .
Coach Crowley's Michigan State
boys will be out to avenge the one
point loss suffered last year at the
hands, of Georgetown and from our
seat it looks as though they should
-k I

turn the trick handily. DePauw
looks good enough to down their
old intersectional rival Boston U.,
but not by the decisive score pf
22-7 registered last season.
On the West coast California will
be out to avenge the terrific 74-0
drubbing suffered last year at the
hands of Southern California, but
Howard Jones' boys seem to have
hit their stride again and look to
be a little too hot to handle. Stan-
ford should have a hard tussle with
Washington State, but once again
the cards appear to be stacked in
their favor.
Kansas-Nebraska to Act.
In the Southwest Kansas is prim-
ed to turn the tables on Nebraska
and atone for the 16-0 defeat of
last year. We look for them to win
by a close score. Texas A. & M.
should win handily from Baylor.
In the South Tulane should wal-
lop Georgia Tech. by at least the
28-0. count of last season. The
Georgia-Vanderbilt battle appears
to be a toss-up, but we give a slight
edge to Dan McGugin's boys.
Alabama is once more too strong
for Sewanee, while Tennessee has
too much stuff for North Carolina.
